Well sure, Bush was tougher if you only count noses who’ve gone to jail. Things look quite a bit different when you add up the amount of fines assessed under each administration, especially if you include admissions of guilt. That’s an important point because under Bush they’d settle, claim they’d done nothing wrong and were merely the victims of an overzealous DOJ.

But there’s no doubt the justice system in this country is skewed towards the rich. That kid that got away with manslaughter on an “affluenza” defense should be proof of that assertion.
